Chain jumps on hills
#1
Hello, My chain junps off the small chainring when cranking up hill in low gear?<br />
I'll be standing up cranking pretty good all of a sudden the gears/chaing get tight and then the chain jumps off? (Shimano Ultegra) any thoughts?<br />
Thanks,<br />
Jeff

Probably worn chain/cassette/chainring. What do you mean the chain "gets tight"? Maybe the derailleur is mis-adjusted and knocking the chain off to the inside?

I might be having a similar problem, but on my mtn bike.
